Vice President Leni Robredo attended the launch of Bangsamoro for Leni, during her visit to Marawi City on Monday, 18 October 2021.
Here, various civil society organizations pledged their support for Robredo’s presidential bid in 2022, underscoring the Vice President’s consistent presence and assistance in Mindanao, especially the Bangsamoro region. VP Leni, in turn, expressed her gratitude for this show of support, and underscored the importance of empowering citizens, especially those in the fringes, in the fight to ensure good governance.
“Iyong pakikipaglaban para sa tamang governance, nagsisimula sa empowerment ng pinakamaliit na sektor ng pamahalaan. Gustong sabihin, obligasyon nating lahat na magtulong para ma-empower iyong mga tao—ma-empower na matuto [sa] pagpili,” she said.
Under its Angat Buhay program, the Office of the Vice President has brought initiatives for livelihood, education, women empowerment, rural development, housing, and health to various parts of Mindanao.
The OVP has also actively supported the City of Marawi and other nearby areas since the siege broke out, providing, among others, an Angat Buhay Village for displaced families, different forms of interventions for relief, livelihood, education, as well as assistance for wounded soldiers and policemen and for the families of those killed in action. OVP’s support for Marawi and other parts of Mindanao continued during the COVID-19 pandemic, with PPE and medical supplies, testing kits, and tapping community sewers for its local production of protective suits.
